Jobfox

Jobfox is a job search and career networking site that shifts the traditional job board model upside down.

Instead of focusing on open job listings, Jobfox is designed to showcase top job candidates, giving professionals personal-branding pages, mobile tracking of resumes, and enhanced communications with employers.

The site allows professionals to showcase their unique career strengths and goals, marketing their personal skills, talents, work-styles, career aspirations and job-change receptivity. Jobfox’s intelligent job-fit technology uses this data to provide the best matches between individuals and their potential employers. Built-in widgets enable candidates to easily share their Jobfox Pages on other social networking sites such as MySpace. Jobfox has a no scam policy that ensures fraudulent companies are not included in their listings. This ‘Jobfox scam’ policy is a key differentiator that separates Jobfox from many other free career sites that promote fake work-from-home jobs and degree scams.

Furthermore, Jobfox offers better communication to job seekers. Their Resume Tracker sends a mobile text message to individuals any time their resume has been viewed by an employer. Furthermore, Jobfox candidates can opt to share their online instant messaging availability with prospective employers.

Jobfox competes directly with job search sites Monster.com and Careerbuilder.com.
